I have taught courses in philosophy of science, philosophy of language, epistemology, and critical reasoning. The full list of the courses I have taught can be found in my CV.

Most recently, I taught a graduate course in epistemology. This course focused on the methods of the special sciences, particularly on scientists’ reasoning with non-universal scientific generalizations.

Most if not all lawlike generalizations in the special sciences are ceteris paribus. These generalizations allow for such a diverse set of exceptions that it is impossible to list the conditions required for the generalization to hold universally. One example is the generalization: “Ceteris paribus, when the demand for a good increases, the price of that good will increase as well.” In this course, we discuss the meaning of these ceteris paribus generalizations, how they can be confirmed/falsified, and what type of inferences they license.
